THEME 3: Linking Strategy and Operations to Drive Results
KEYNOTE SESSION: Management Meetings to Monitor, Learn, and Adapt

In this session, Dr. Robert Kaplan will share his insights into how management meetings should work and how they can be used to enhance the organization’s ability to execute strategy.

The Balanced Scorecard
Driving Transformational Change with the Balanced Scorecard
The journey to greater organizational performance requires a willingness to change and adapt.

With the BSC, an organization can translate strategy, create strategy-focused initiatives, and manage the change that is needed for establishing buy-in and inspiring action. In this session, you will learn how the University of Leeds has used the BSC to drive the change and action that is needed to achieve greater levels of organizational performance.
